St. John Lutheran Cemetery is owned by St. John's Lutheran Church, 11005 NE Highway 99, Vancouver, WA 98686.


Please note there are TWO separate cemeteries at this address. The cemetery looks like it is one cemetery but per the caretaker of this cemetery, it is two cemeteries. As you enter the cemetery, the section and rows directly on the left, is the St John Lutheran Cemetery section. The other cemetery is Salmon Creek Methodist Cemetery, owned by Salmon Creek Methodist Church. 

Per the sign at the cemetery, St. John Lutheran Cemetery was established in 1913. It is in very good condition and well cared for.  Cemetery is fenced in, but not locked. There is a road into and thru the cemetery.

Cemetery Records

Records below were transcribed from tombstone inscriptions by Suzanne Livingstone during an initial visit to the cemetery in February 2020. It is possible there may be other stones, some of which are no longer visible, either under grass or very weathered to where they are non legible. A couple stones appeared to be missing the plaque with the names and dates as well.

The oldest marked grave was from 1903 and the cemetery is still actively used.

    cemetery records

    A free online library of cemetery records from thousands of cemeteries across the world, for historical and genealogy research.

    Clear Digital Media, Inc.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
